AUD/USD Rejected from 0.7500, Consolidates Near 0.7400
The Australian dollar lost steam on Thursday and staged a corrective pullback, reversing part of its recent gains against the greenback, after hitting fresh monthly highs.
AUD/USD briefly rose above 0.75 and stretched to a peak of 0.7504 during the Asian session, but came under pressure in a strongly risk-averse environment. AUD/USD slid to a low of 0.7419 before finding support.
In the absence of first-tier data or events, the pair has spent the last hours consolidating in a range, and it was last at 0.7434, recording a 0.48% loss on the day.
AUD/USD levels to watch
